Health care

Simon Hazelman, Savusavu
Tuesday, March 06, 2018

National Federation Party leader Professor Biman Prasad is absolutely correct to state that FijiFirst Government has failed to deliver decent and quality medical and health care to the people of Fiji (FT 05/03).

What the NFP leader did not mention is that neither did any other Fiji government!

While we have always lacked progression and innovation in both health care and education, we must commend FijiFirst for making a move to do something about it.

In a developing country as ours, it comes as no easy feat. It would be very difficult to emulate our developed neighbours.

Prof Prasad, why don't you enlighten us on how you plan to go about providing the nation with decent, quality, medical and health care?

Sell us your plans?
